Get to know the most interesting places in the western Algarve, including the Costa Vicentina Natural Park, the caves of Ponta da Piedade, Sagres’ famous fort and the Caldas de Monchique.
The untouched nature, rich, mystical heritage, and wild beauty of the park will take your breath away. Its windswept beaches and rugged caves are considered the most picturesque in the Algarve.
Sagres’ Fort is located at the southern tip of the Sagres Peninsular and has protected the town from raiders for centuries. It was from here that Henry the Navigator devised his 15th century expeditions to the uncharted seas around the western side of Africa, which heralded in the golden era of Portuguese exploration.
Set in a beautifully wooded ravine, Caldas de Monchique was a spa even in Roman times and was once popular with Portuguese royalty. It was restored in 2000, turning it into a quaint little tourist spot and spa village, making it the perfect place to relax at the end of our trip.
